DIY Gel X Nails

Applying Gel X at home can be a bit tricky, but with the right tools and some practice, it can be done. Here are the steps to follow to apply Gel X at home:

  1. Prepare your natural nails: Start by removing any old nail polish and shaping your natural nails with a nail file. Buff the surface of your nails lightly to remove any shine and ensure the Gel X tips adhere properly.

  2. Choose the right Gel X tips: The Gel X system comes with various tips in different sizes, shapes, and lengths. Choose the ones that fit your natural nails best, and make sure to have extras on hand in case any of them don't fit properly.

  3. Apply the tips: Apply a small amount of the Gel X adhesive to the underside of the Gel X tip and press it onto your natural nail. Hold it in place for a few seconds to ensure it adheres properly. Continue applying the Gel X tips to each nail, making sure to position them correctly.

  4. Trim and file the tips: Once all the tips are in place, trim them to the desired length with nail clippers. Use a nail file to shape and smooth the tips, ensuring that they look natural and even.

  5. Apply the gel formula: Apply the Gel X gel formula to the tips, making sure to cover the entire surface. Cure the gel with an LED lamp according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  6. Shape and buff the nails: Once the Gel X extensions are cured, use a nail file to shape them to your desired shape and length. Buff the surface of the nails to remove any imperfections.

  7. Apply a topcoat: Finally, apply a topcoat to give the Gel X nails a glossy and shiny finish. Cure the topcoat with an LED lamp according to the manufacturer's instruct

It's important to note that applying Gel X at home does require some practice and skill, so it's recommended to start with a small section of nails and gradually work your way up to the full set. Additionally, make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully, and avoid over-filing or over-buffing the nails, as this can cause damage or lifting.
